7 Years ago, a friend of mine paid too much for a 1999 American Cruiser like this one - http://www.classbforum.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2395. She took it camping once and thought it was more work than she expected. She bought more accessories and took it camping again and it still didn't cut it for her. She parked it. She went out to check on it "a couple of months later" and found a wet spot. She tarped it and knew it was more work than she expected. At this point, she had owned it for about a year and a half. She talked to me about it one day and I offered to look at it for her. I did and made some suggestions. About two years later, she lamented that she still hadn't done what I suggested. About a year and a half later, I sent her some suggestions via email. Earlier this week, she asked me if I would haul it away if she gave me a dollar, the keys, and the signed title.
I made sure she was clean, sober, and serious and went by to pick up the keys and the title yesterday and a friend and I hauled it away today.
It was last inspected in 2009 and hasn't been driven since June of 2010, so it's at an automotive shop now - I want the chassis side to be safe and reliable. This will mean 4 new tires, a new battery, greasing it up good, and replacing all of the fluids before inspecting it. I estimate $1,500 - $2,000 for this. Then, I will bring it home and clean it up before I take it to Forest RV for them to service the generator and the RV side of things while pulling out the rotten flooring, fixing the leak, and rebuilding some of the wood parts. I estimate $2,000 - $3,000 for this.
At that point, we will have a really cool, cozy little camper and will have spent less than half of what it is worth. If this all plays out as planned, we will see you all at the spring rally!

I think we’re going to Anvil Campground in Williamsburg this weekend.....anyone camp there? Reviews? Since we’re in a Class A and don’t pull a car....yet, I like that they offer a shuttle to area places. We hadn’t planned to camp again this weekend....but this weather is so AWESOME!
